Hindutva Government Allows Sri Sri to Turn India Into Syria and Keeps Innocents Like Jaggi Johal Detained Without Charge

In an exclusive interview with India Today TV’s Padmaja Joshi, Ravi Shankar, who has been holding parleys with the various parties involved in the Ram Mandir issue for a long time, said, “If Ram Mandir issue is not solved, we will have a Syria in India.”

In his interview with India Today, Sri Sri invoked the Syrian civil war to say that Muslims should “give up” their claims on Ayodhya . “Muslims should give up their claim on Ayodhya as a goodwill gesture… Ayodhya is not place of faith for Muslims.”

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s Syria remark over Ram temple issue on Monday was slammed by the leaders from different political parties, calling it “provocative”.

“Sri Sri Ravi Shankar should refrain from giving out such provocative statements,” senior Janata Dal (United) leader KC Tyagi told ANI. Echoing the same, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Majid Memon termed the Art of Living (AoL) founder’s remarks sad. “I am sad to hear this comment from Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji. I did not expect him to give a statement that could increase violence,” said Memon.He further questioned the reason behind Ravi Shankar’s intervention, “I would also very respectfully like to ask that the intervention you are doing, where were you from the past 25 years? He is coming out and talking about the issue just when the time when the Supreme Court is about to announce its decision.”
